And I Thought I Hated Housecleaning
My girlfriends and I often joke about favorite shortcuts we’ve learned to keeping a clean house. Here's the top three:
1) Win the lottery and hire a cleaning team.
2) Win the lottery and just move, leaving everything behind.
3) 10 gallons gasoline, 1 match, and you're good to go.
Then this story was on the news last month about a woman who was charged with arson after her mansion burned down. According to reports, she actually admitted to firefighters and a policeman that she had set the fire because she was "sick of the house" and "wanted to let it burn". The officer noted there was jewelry, keepsakes, and children’s photos in her car on the scene when they arrived.
I think she was just tired of being the only one trying to keep up with the cleaning. Or she was really into decluttering - just take whatever fits in the car.
